Down to Earth - - REVIEW - by Ava Chin Si­mon and Schus­ter / ` 900

IN THIS touch­ing and in­for­ma­tive mem­oir, food blog­ger Ava Chin takes off on an emo­tional jour­ney to make sense of her fam­ily ties and ro­man­tic fail­ures when her beloved grand­mother be­comes se­ri­ously ill. She re­treats into the ur­ban wilds, where parks and back­yards pro­vide not only rare and de­li­cious edi­ble plants, but a well­spring of wis­dom.

As the sea­sons turn, Chin be­gins to view her life with new eyes, ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the world as a place of plenty and va­ri­ety. Her ex­pe­ri­ences in na­ture put her on a path to self-dis­cov­ery, and help her find true love. Eat­ing Wildly will stir your emo­tions and en­liven your taste buds.
